Get Smart

Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO

Eliminating disparities in health care is the right thing to do – and it’s also the smart thing to do. The Equity of Care team has put together a simple, straightforward slide presentation that makes the business case. It includes facts and figures, lists priority areas and goals, and provides resources and self-assessment tools. The presentation is a great way to kick off discussions with hospital staff and trustees. The American Hospital Association is part of the national Equity of Care partnership, along with the American College of Healthcare Executives, Association of American Medical Colleges, Catholic Health Association of the United States and America’s Essential Hospitals, working together to improve quality of care for every patient by disseminating best practices and resources for equitable care. I hope you’ll take this opportunity to get smart about health care disparities and how we can address them.
